  • oh yeah and if you're hardcore like I was you'll send one ahead to labor and delivery department and have MORE copies when you goto hospital. your partner should give one to the *CHARGE NURSE* within a few minutes of stepping in the door, and a new copy to each charge nurse each and every shift change.
